Well, then, here you go. Dancing the potato head of the universe into being. One of these might or might not be the cosmic vet.

Wake up to find out that you are the Eyes of the Potato
The tater has a peeler, some hash browns and salt of its own
Wake now discover that you are the starch that the breakfast brings
The tater has its seasonings, its deep fryer and french fries of its own

Sometimes the spuds that we eat are just spuds of our own

There's no hot potato you can hold for very long ...

Thanks to this thread, I now have a raging hunger for some Aloo Mutter with puris. It's about 2 am local time for me and I don't think I'm motivated enough to do the cooking, though.

Oh well, guess it's a good opportunity for practicing renunciation and avoiding attachment to sense-pleasure here within the veil of maya. Thus does laziness become spirituality!

All I can think of is the old thread where we discussed "misheard lyrics" and someone said they always thought it was "wake up to find out you're disquised as a squirrel" It was probably a New World squirrel that wispered to the Incas to give some Brit an eye for an eye to return home with...

Good job, BK; you're fitting right in hereabouts...fortunately, though the Brits forced us to farm spuds, then probably developed the blight just to smite us ( ;) ), eventually killing off one quarter of "us" by 1848 ( :( ), we remain the drunken, "always willing to take a joke" folk that write happy war songs and sad love sagas...

"wake up to find out you're disquised as a squirrel"

That is hysterical - I spit out my coffee.

I so love that song, and now I'm afraid I'm never going to hear it correctly again - or see a squirrel without thinking of it.

Do you have your coffee? Saint of Circumstance, as heard by Fenario's nephew:

"Sure don't know what I'm goin for,
But I'm gonna go for the hippo show ..."

Absolutely classic. Now you will hear squirrels AND hippos.

Misheard lyric in Throwin Stones from a friend of mine:

"Chicken powers back and forth" - instead of "shipping powders back and forth".

Cromwell, Henry VIII, his daughters, Cromwell, high rents, no access to education, Cromwell, the bottom caste and all from an aggressor/oppressor, not from the people, Cromwell. We are going on 500 years in 2036. I was so touched recently when HRM 'almost' apologized for it all in Dublin.

I'm swooning now just thinking of it.....

You know Ian (Mcglone, he of the beautiful wife and daughter; nicest guy on the Forum, I tell you) grew up in the Wicklow S of Dublin town, fishing for trout in the beautiful mountains thereabouts...? My son trekked thru same area and we met him there after his two weeks in the "wilderness" (actually, some almost is)--I even wrote in to the Forum from "there" 4 yrs ago.

I know of your praises of Mr. Mcglone (plus he is Irish), but his brevity since I've joined the forum is unequaled.
His photos and daughter are beautiful, but that is all. (By the way, small g in Mcglone?)
I'm getting hungry just thinking of eating some trout from the 'wilderness'. Smoked for some odd reason. You get around WT, I'll say that. Creaky knees and whatever aside.
My Irish family, who we reconnected with twenty odd years ago, hails from County Caven, but are now spread out all throughout the island and beyond. We even have an published author in the family tree. M.F. Kenny, with the oddly titled, 'Marathon Marriage'. Think Angela's Ashes. For all the Irishman that have graced the earth, you and I are lucky bastards to be born in this time and place. I like things as having a pair of shoes.

Yes, it's just the accident of "g" here--for his handle--that causes me to do that, but in the "real" name, "G"...as you note.
